1. Locate the “MountainsMap_v7.exe” file that was downloaded. In most cases, this will be in your Downloads folder, which will be in C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME \Downloads\

*TIP: A quick way to get to your Downloads folder is to look for this button on your task bar:

After clicking it, expand the This PC section on the left, and there should be a Downloads folder here.

Double click this file to begin the installation process.
Please note you must have administrator rights to install.

NOTE: If you are seeing the screen below when you double click the install file, then MountainsMap® is already installed on your computer. Please close out of this window by clicking on “No” to cancel installation and proceed to step 4.

Once again, if you would like to install a new version of MountainsMap® we do recommend you uninstall all other versions.
